Making Peace Last: A new book by Senior Associate Rob Ricigliano

In this May 2012 podcast,  Rob talks about his new book, Making Peace Last:  A Toolbox for Sustainable Peacebuilding.

In the conversation with Mark Metcalf, Rob discusses the United States’ approach to peacebuilding, his work overseas, the Arab Spring, and the last decade of armed conflict in Afghanistan and Iraq and how the role of the military is changing.

“People ask me am I optimistic about peace and peacebuilding in the future,” said Ricigliano. “And I say, I’m probably more optimistic now than I’ve ever been. One of the main reasons is that the main advocates for the kind of peacebuilding work that I talk about in the book is the U.S. military.”
